Alden Ehrenreich is ready for his close-up as he covers the May 2018 issue of Esquire. Photographed by Alexi Lubomirski, Ehrenreich plays it rugged in an outdoors photo shoot. Promoting Solo: A Star Wars Story, Ehrenreich wears fashions from brands like Frame and Calvin Klein. Addressing rumors that he needed an acting coach to tackle the role of Han Solo, Ehrenreich responds. Talking about acting coach Maggie Kiley, Ehrenreich says,
She was part of conversations that happened for a couple weeks at one point...but that was basically it.
Discussing the actual movie production, the 28-year-old actor offers,
We tried a lot of different things. That was yielding a different movie than the other factions wanted. You don't know what it's shaping up to be, how they're editing it, so it's kind of impossible without having seen those things to know what the difference [of opinion] was, or exactly what created those differences. He adds,
The actors are at the kids' table, unless you're also a producer of the movie. So you're really kept out of all the backroom dynamics of what was going on.
